klokers KLOK-02 : Push Button Time Travel

After the immense success of KLOK-01, which has recently created history on Kickstarter online crowd funding platform by amassing more than 48,6800 Euros (The KS campaign is still running), the young watch brand klokers unveils its latest model: KLOK-02. Designed for travellers, KLOK-02 makes both international travel and communication easier by letting the wearer knows the time anywhere else on the planet at the push of a button.
While it may be the large arc of the retrograde minutes and seconds sweeping across the top section of KLOK-02 that first catches the eye, it's the small windows underneath where the real magic happens. A circular opening displays jumping hours, to the right of which is a window showing cities, each city in one of 24 time zones around the world. A short press of the pusher on the case band at 4 o'clock changes the city/time zone and the hour in that city's time zone automatically synchronizes.  A longer press of the pusher causes the date to display.
KLOK-02 features a high-precision, quartz regulated, Swiss Made Soprod SOP 813 mechatronic movement with displays driven by high-efficiency/low power consumption, bi-directional Lavet micro-motors.
The slim 43 mm case of KLOK-02 is made from a composite metal polymer offering high strength and low weight, ensuring that the timepiece fits comfortably on wrists of all sizes. A pusher at 8 o'clock on the case band releases the watch from the docking "jewel" for ease of changing watches and bracelets.
All of klokers bracelets feature a patented docking "Key" that enables quick and easy interchangeability of watches and bracelets. The watch is detached from the bracelet by a pusher on the case band at 8 o'clock.
klokers bracelets (KLOK-00) are designed to also be worn alone as attractive accessories in their own right. With a wide range of colors, textures, and materials available, the easily interchangeable bracelets ensure that your klokers' bracelet and/or watch will always suit your mood and clothing.
KLOK-02 is priced at €985 and will be officially launched by a Kickstarter campaign in November 2015 in a numbered edition launch model.
Colors available in 2015 include matte black leather, silky black leather, indigo leather, orange alcantara, mouse-gray alcantara, and Newport yellow leather. Two new collections of bracelets will be launched each year.
